Hindustan Unilever Ltd (HUL) generated electricity by processing approximately 15,000 tons of plastic waste during the fiscal year 2018-19 (Apr-Mar), according to the company’s annual report.
In addition, HUL collected and safely disposed of approximately 5,000 tons of post-consumer-use plastic waste. According to the report, it used the remaining plastic waste for co-processing in cement kilns.
According to a report on CSR India, 20,000 tons of plastics were collected from 20 cities across the country.
The company, which claims to have committed to making 100% of its plastic packaging reusable, recyclable, and compostable by 2025, anticipates obtaining 25% of all plastic it uses from recycled sources by this time.
According to the report, HUL is also collaborating closely with the government and other partners such as the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) on end-to-end pilot projects for plastic waste management.
